Prepare for a bleak midwinter: Nesbø's thriller sees Detective Harry Hole tracking a professional hit man bent on destruction

Harry Hole returns in a pulse-pounding thriller like no other.

‘This book had my pulse in the red zone from start to finish’ Michael Connelly

A freezing December night
Christmas shoppers have gathered to listen to a Salvation Army carol concert. Then a shot rings out and one of the singers falls to the floor, dead.

A blood-curdling terror
Detective Harry Hole and his team are called in to investigate but have little to work with - there is no immediate suspect, no weapon and no motive. But when the assassin discovers he's shot the wrong man, Harry finds his troubles have only just begun.

Now the clock is ticking before he kills again

*JO NESBO HAS SOLD 40 MILLION BOOKS WORLDWIDE*


*Watch out for Knife, the new Harry Hole thriller, coming summer 2019*

Reviews

The Redeemer rocks! Jo Nesbo is my new favorite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero. This book had my pulse in the red zone from start to finish

Michael Connelly

Nesbo is in a class of his own

Evening Standard

Terrific shocks, tension and atmosphere

The Times

Nesbo's fourth novel [and it] proves to be as brilliant as his other three...grimly realistic...an engrossing mystery

The Scotsman

Even when you're positive that the mystery is entirely done and dusted, it invariably turns out that the pragmatic Detective Harry Hole has managed to stay three steps ahead and there's more to uncover
